Trencrom Hill: home again

Arriving home from almost a month away it was obviously going to be the first thing we would do once the sun shone. The walk up our local hill. For once it wasn’t even windy on top, now that’s a first! The cerulean sky was dotted with puffy white cumulus clouds contrasting with the superb rusty-brown bracken and flecks of golden gorse.


This view never gets boring


Late blackberries were still ripening in the lane, the red and black glistening jewels punctuating the greenness; buzzards mewed overhead. Otherwise. Silence.

Sitting at the top of the hill, with butterflies dancing in the light breeze it was just the usual breath-taking views; the peace; the stillness; the pleasure of taking a deep breath and letting it s-l-o-w-l-y out…


After days of driving along some of Britain’s busiest motorways and A roads I could feel myself relaxing once more and wondering whether I really need to leave this place again.

    O wise woman of Trencolm Hill! I like that 🙂 🙂 How was the garden when you got back? Heaps of weeding? Never leave it again… till Barcelona 🙂

      Fortunately at this time of year everything in the garden is dying not growing! Except I MUST get my tulips planted!

    I clicked on your WPC: Relax post and imagine my surprise to see this post at the bottom. I spent a winter in the cottage at the foot of Trencrom Hill many years ago. At that time, the cottage had only an open fireplace for heat and when it rained, water ran down the interior walls. Golden days! But the walk up the hill and the view from the top were and, from your photos, still are magical – Virginia Wolff’s lighthouse in one direction and St. Michael’s Mount the other way. Thanks for the very nice photos and the memories.

      I don’t suppose it has changed much around here for years – and that view is still the same 🙂

      Thanks for popping in Graham and leaving a comment, I’m glad this brought back good memories.
